Well, it looks like Taylor Swift‘s invitation writing hand is sore today after furiously crossing Lady Gaga‘s name off the guest list to her annual Fourth of July / Katy Perry is a Big Fatty Meanie Party. After old texts between Kesha and Gaga were released as part of the Dr. Luke investigation shit show, Gaga is taking back what she said about Katy.
To offer a refresher, documents in Kesha’s case against Dr. Luke were recently unsealed which highlighted a text exchange between Kesha and Gaga where the two singers shared how they both agreed that Katy was “mean“. Now Gaga insists she’s had a change of heart and she and Katy are totally cool, doing a little rapid damage control in the form of a love note to Katy on Twitter.
.@katyperry & I have grown up in the industry together. We’ve gone through both celebrations & differences w/ each other. These are old texts. We’ve matured, gotten over the past, love each other & share deep respect. Katy is my friend and is truly a kind soul. End of story. ❤️

Katy blew a warm-ish (I just couldn’t go with “Luke” warm) air kiss back at Gaga. And thus peace was made in the valley and we are saved from another potential dragged out pop star feud and a war that could have aptly been titled “Monsters VS Cats” (the cats totally would have won- cats always win).
Love you too friend ❤️ Onward and upward ?❤️? https://t.co/tYl4ueBjB5

No response from Kesha, and that is good news. Now everyone can put this story to bed and stop taking attention away from the point that matters here: skeezy men in power taking advantage of the women around them. And now that that’s done, Gaga can prepare for the eventual copyright infringement lawsuit that Taylor Swift will hit her with for calling Katy Perry “mean.” I’m sure that Taylor knew she would be feuding with Katy Perry in the future so wrote her 2010 song Mean about her. Lawyer up, Gaga!
